Reviews - What do our customers think?
Now I can see (and appreciate) the differences  Jun 18, 2007
Especially on hotly-debated issues of baptism, many books claiming to be fair and balanced really aren't. This one really is. Haitch gives a fine overview (scholarly but very readable) of eight positions, from the Eastern Orthodox with its concern for exorcism, to the Pentecostal with its emphasis on ecstatic speech.

Approaching baptism as a window into different theological frames of mind, this book let me see the scriptural reasoning behind denominational differences. Equally important, it gives some reasons why baptism matters for everyday Christian life and ministry.

I found biographical notes on Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Wesley and others interesting as well.

To quote William Placher (from the back cover): "Pastors and students wanting a clear account of the alternatives within the Christian tradition could not turn to a better resource than this one."

Surveying the views on baptism of eight of history's most influential theologians, the author expertly explains the development and bases for the varieties of interpretation and practice of this holy sacrament throughout modern Christianity. First identifying the guiding motif in each of these foundational perspectives, the author ably and accessibly demonstrates how each yields unique theological and practical implications for Christian belief and life. Engaging the work Thomas Aquinas, Karl Barth, John Calvin, Martin Luther, Aimee Semple McPherson, Alexander Schmemann, John Wesley, and John Howard Yoder, the author illuminates the differences between Eastern Orthodox, Anabaptist, Roman Catholic, Anglican, Methodist, Lutheran, Reformed, neo-orthodox, and Pentecostal traditions.
